Library Policies

Overdue Policy

Overdue fines are assessed if items are not returned or renewed by the due date. Be sure to check due dates for the items you have on loan. If fines and/or other fees charged to your library card total more than $10.00, use of your card is suspended until the fines are paid.

Overdue notices are mailed as a courtesy. Failure to receive an overdue notice does not exempt a card holder from the responsibility for overdue fines.

Fines begin on the 10th day after a three-week item is due; the fine is $1.00 and goes up $.10 each day afterwards. The fine for a three day item is $.50 per day and begins the day after the item is due. The fines for one-week items is $.10 and begins the day after an item is due.

Angier Public Library has a 90 day late fine policy. If your fines are not paid within 90 days your library card will be blocked from all library services.

Type of Material Fine per Day
Three week materials $1.00 on the 10th day
One week items $.10 and begins the day after an item is due.
